Learning from home
If your child is unable to come to school.due to COVID-19 isolation, please use this page to access different ideas and resources to support learning at home.
So far this term, we have been working very hard on our communication skills such as initiating play, communicating a want or need and using eye contact.
In Ash Class we love getting together to listen to a story - this term it is 'The Colours In The Rainbow'. We have created two new stories for you to read whilst at home - Purple Bubble's Colour Hunt and our version of The Day The Crayons Quit'. The links to these stories are below.
Please find a table of suggested ideas for learing at home. If you need anything else, please contact school.
Ash class really enjoyed our halloween activities. They made so many creative pieces of artwork including witches with paper plates and paper mache pumpkins using balloons. They also took part in our sensory story 'here we go walking through the haunted house' where they found halloween characters and explored items related to what they found. On the last day of term we all put our best halloween fancy dress on and had a halloween party in class.
This year we had our very own bonfire celebrations in Ash class. We had a firework sensory story where the children attended their own bonfire party. They explored marshmallows, fairy lights and party poppers and then watched a firework display. In creative they made their own bonfire and firework artwork and we even had sparkelers outside!
We love to play in Ash class and its a very important part of our learning. In play we can develop our imagination, commuication, interation with adults and other pupils and even learn about numbers and colours. We love messy play too there is always something to engage with when we come into school.
Spring Home Learning.
This term our topic is Animal Boogie so there are lots of fun things you can try at home :)
This term Ash class have been looking at animals. We have started with jungle animals and we have been going on a lion hunt in our sensory story exploring wavy grass, cold water, squishy mud and a dark cave. This has extended into other areas of the school day such as sensory, creative, numeracy and literacy. The children have loved exploring lots of new activities in the new topic. We will continue the topic with farm animals in the coming weeks.
This term in creative we have been making a range of animals who live in the jungle. The children have used a lot of different textures and materials to create their work. We have made lions, elephants, monkeys, parrots and giraffes.
Sensory play is an important part of our day. The pupils all really enjoy exploring different items alongside items to do with our topic. We have done an animal paint stomp in paint and in foam. Bikes and scooters are highly motivating for the pupils and can help their sensory needs, they also help with communication of "more" or "finished".
When the weather allows it the children in Ash class love playing outside. We often have sensory activities out in the trays as well as our play equipment. We are ecouraging the children to engage in activities such as the scooter, diggers, wendy house and drawing with chalk.
Physical education is important in Ash class. We do circuits in the sports hall and small hall each week to build up balance, strength, co-ordination and concentration. PE can also be brought into the classroom, we always have a physical circuit set up in class if the children want to access it. We sometimes bring in equipment from outside as well to ecourage more movement thruought the day.
